After months of hiding out at home and merry making for the holidays, we are all about green juice for January. We tailored this recipe to be an ultra hydrating juice for recovery from late nights or when you’re dragging and simply need a boost. Not just good for you, this detoxifying and restorative juice featuring turmeric, ginger, pineapple and lemon is absolutely delicious. We hope you enjoy!
Juice Ingredients ~2 servings:
~1 inch fresh ginger
~1 inch turmeric
1 large cucumber
1 handful of fresh mint
1 cup cubed pineapple
Juice of 1 lemon
Agave, honey or stevia (optional)
Fresh black pepper for each serving
16 oz Milk thistle herbal tea brewed and cooled
Directions for those with a Juicer:
Rinse and process the ginger, turmeric, cucumber, pineapple and mint through a juice presser. No need to peel or chop things up. Squeeze the lemon juice and add to the other juiced ingredients. Add honey or stevia to taste (or extra pineapple if you like sweeter juice!). Fill about ⅓ of a mason jar with juice and then fill the remainder of the jar with herbal tea and 2 grinds of pepper. Shake it up and enjoy! Store remaining juice and tea in the fridge to drink later in the day.
Directions for those without a juicer:
If you don’t have a juicer, you can also make this juice in a blender with a teeny amount of extra effort. Roughly chop and add all of your juicer ingredients to the blender. Pour about 16 ounces of the herbal tea of your choice on top and blend. Strain through cheesecloth into 3 pint jars. Squeeze the lemon juice and divide amongst the jars. Add your sweetener of choice. Top with herbal tea, shake and enjoy!
